Peter is a nomadic vampire roaming North America with his mate Charlotte. He befriended Jasper Whitlock while they were in the Mexican coven and have been close as brothers ever since, therefore creating a loyalty with Jasper's mate Alice Cullen.
Peter was originally created during the Southern Wars as part of Maria's army. Against long odds, he survived his first three years. His job was to care for the newborns, full-time. He was later befriended by Jasper, and fell in love with the newborn Charlotte. Jasper described him as a civilized vampire who didn't like to fight, even though he was good at it.
One day Jasper was ordered by Maria to kill all the 'pawns'; newborns past their first year. Jasper requested Peter's help. Peter tried to persuade Jasper that some had potential, but Jasper disagreed. After a long night of killing, Jasper could see it was taking a toll on Peter. When Jasper called out the next name on the list, Peter was suddenly furious. When Charlotte appeared, Peter changed; his feelings gave him away. He shouted for her to run, bolting after her. Both escaped successfully.
Five years later, Peter returned for Jasper, who had also left. By this time, Peter and Charlotte had found a more peaceful lifestyle up North. While traveling with Jasper, Peter noticed his depression was always worse after they hunted. Jasper left after a few years traveling with the couple, since he couldn't handle the overwhelming emotions of his prey. Peter and Charlotte didn't feel the same way; they only wanted release from fighting. After Jasper settled with the Cullens, Peter and Charlotte visited regularly.

- "Each of them was won over. Each was made to see... Although we were grateful for their help, their thirst for human blood complicated the situation. The nomads Rosalie and Emmett sent were even more unpredictable, especially Peter, who fought alongside Jasper as a newborn."

When the Volturi threaten the Cullens' entire existence due to a mistaken report about the vampire hybrid Renesmee being an immortal child, Jasper suggests they find Peter and Charlotte to testify against their accusations.
Later, Alice and Jasper find Peter and Charlotte, and send them to Forks where their family explained the situation. Unlike the Denali coven's initial reaction to Renesmee, they show less wariness, since they had never seen an immortal child before. After the situation was resolved in an almost completely peaceful way, Peter and Charlotte share a conversation with Jasper before departing.
Peter is described as being 6'3" tall, almost as tall as Jasper, with long, white blond hair and a lean body. As a human-feeding vampire, he has red eyes that darken the longer he keeps from feeding. In the movie, he wears jeans upheld by a cowboy-belt and a gray vest, a blue shirt along with a brown leather jacket.
Peter is not known for his restraint, as he was raised by Maria, who just wanted her troops strong. Peter's emotions shine through quite clearly about the way he feels for Charlotte.
He has a strong sense of loyalty to Jasper and thinks of him as a brother of sorts.

Peter is known to be a very strong vampire. His combat skills allowed him to stay alive as well as become a permanent member of the Mexican coven before he left with Charlotte.
- Main article: Peter and Charlotte
Charlotte is Peter's mate. They first met in the Mexican Coven when Charlotte was brought into the coven as a newborn.
Unlike the rest of the newborns he knew, he found Charlotte's company quite entertaining, and it did not take long before they fell in love. Peter became anxious as her newborn year reached its end, and tried to console in Jasper and Maria to keep her to no success.
Knowing that she was to be executed, Peter fled from the coven with Charlotte up North, where they established a more peaceful existence.
Peter and Charlotte currently live their lives freely as nomads up in North America, and they occasionally visit the Cullens for social call or assistance.
Jasper Hale is Peter's companion, whom he befriended during his time with the Mexican Coven. They first met when Peter was brought into the coven. Jasper and Peter enjoyed each other's company so much that they became fast friends and companions.
Jasper was the one who convinced Maria to keep Peter due to his useful skills. Peter knew that Jasper had saved his life, and he felt indebted; he would do anything Jasper asked.
After he fled with Charlotte, he snuck back for Jasper to tell him about life up north and convinced him to leave with him. He was surprised, though, when Jasper agreed. After Jasper found Alice and adapted to vegetarianism, Peter was happy for him, though he could never grasp the benefits of not hunting humans.
After Alice and Jasper joined the Cullen family, Peter and Charlotte would occasionally visit them for social calls or assistance.
